    These "Jeopardy!" Contestants Couldn't Tell The Biggest Martial Arts Actors Apart

    "Who is Jackie Chan?" Nope. "Who is Bruce Lee?" Sigh.

    On an episode of Jeopardy! last week, host Alex Trebek read a clue describing a prettttty famous international martial arts star.

    One who, in 1974, as Trebek explained, "at 11 years old, did kung fu for President Nixon."

    "Twenty-four years later, he made his Hollywood movie debut in Lethal Weapon 4," Trebek added.

    Then, this photo appeared on the screen.

    So, who was Trebek talking about?

    Ava ventured a guess.

    And Steve thought he'd try his luck.

    And Adam was all, Ummmmm.

    Finally, Trebek revealed the identity of the aforementioned martial artist: Jet Li. "L-i," he said. "Not L-e-e."

    You know, Jet Li, who starred in Romeo Must Die opposite Aaliyah! And Cradle 2 the Grave alongside DMX! And Zhang Yimou's gorgeous wuxia film Hero!

    As opposed to Jackie Chan, who you may know from Rush Hour or the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid.

    And Bruce Lee, who starred in films like Enter the Dragon, Fist of Fury, and The Way of the Dragon. He died in 1973, before Jet Li met Nixon or starred in any of the aforementioned movies.

    The more you know! 🌈⭐️
